This amount is paid at a regular interval as promised in your Author-Publisher agreement, along with statement of sales. For example, if your book is priced INR 300 only, and during the first month five hundred copies are sold – out of which 200 copies are directly sold by ORANGE PUBLISHERS, and 300 through other outlets, your net royalty earnings for the first month would be INR 24,000.00 as royalty on book sales.
